Oluwo, A Majestic King With Unequal Charisma By A Serving Osun Corps Member



I was dabbling in the art the time I heard the ding of my phone, I thought it was Allawee's message, when I checked, it was a message of my CDS group (SDGs), visitation to Oluwo of Iwo Land, Oba Abdul Rasheed Akanbi Adewale, the majestic king. I was moved and enchanted the first I saw his pictures on Instagram, the moment I set my eyes on his page, my mind was soaked with his love, the way he dressed, dressing.


My adoration increased the time I watched his interview online on his recent ruckus of buying Made in Nigeria car by Innoson, as a first monarch to use made in Nigeria product.

His outspoken was marvelous and extraordinary, his oratory power was awesome, his accent was very different from Nigerians, very fluent in English, with a pool of wisdom, he is a witty King. History of Oba(s) that never embrace western Education, just only their local languages, this one is different from them, he is very presentable anywhere, in and out of this Country.


Time to pay him a visit, we started our journey to Iwo Land on the 24th January, 2018 with two buses, my mind was at the peak to descry Oluwo of Iwo in flesh not in pictures and eye in eye.


We descended the gate of Oluwo of Iwo, we entered his palace and it was hollow, his palace was stupendous and full of lovely arts. Oba


Abdul Rasheed was not around the time we entered his palace, we strategized on what to do next, we decided to wait for him.


We got tired of waiting, they were shallow but I still thinking of waiting for him, not too long of cooking tiredness, Oluwo of Iwo came in, we felt rejoiced, he accosted us, we did the same, we told him about our project we are embarking on and how we needed his assistance.


 He told us a lot of things, he started by saying " Please go and join politics after your service, I'm very sure your colleagues will vote for you, all their friends will vote for you." I stood in front of him, listening to all his words and grammars, Oluwo of Iwo is not just a king but a grammarian, it will be my pleasure if I recorded his voice but I couldn't, all of us were moved with his vocabularies, proverbs, the way he twisted his lips, I admired his charisma, we were put under his spell for an hour, we didn't even remember that we were travelers because of his sweet and charming words until cloud showed us traces of darkness, we took pictures with him and kissed that day good bye.


Oodles of thanks to His Imperial Majesty, Oba Abdul Rasheed Akanbi Adewale, Telu 1, Ilufemiloye, Alashe Lori orisha, Oluwo of Iwo Land.
